Catton parkrun Event number 234 – 24th March 2018

After a few wet, cold and muddy weekends, the weather picked up, giving us a nice firm and fresh parkrun - long may it continue.
This week 361 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 34 were first timers and 78 recorded new Personal Bests.

A big thank you to the Norwich Road Runners for providing pacers for this weekend's event. They did a great job and I'm sure they helped plenty of our runners to new PBs.

Catton parkrun Event number 233 – 17th March 2018

Catton parkrun
Event number 233
17th March 2018

A very brave and hardy 232 people ran, jogged and walked the course in strong, cold winds, sleet and mud - not the perfect conditions for chasing a PB. The head wind up the central hill was particularly unpleasant. Nonetheless we had 22 first timers and 15 of you recorded new personal bests.

This week we were joined by members of the Mile X Mums Running Group who have just completed a Couch To 5k programme. A great achievement at anytime but especially in such tough conditions. You may have spotted them in their turquoise tops. If anybody wants to know about the group, please contact Jen Clarke by email on milexmumsrun@gmail.com

Each week we celebrate the achievements of a few of our runners. Among those to achieve PBs were Michaela Clements on her 4th run, Andrew Hinsley on his 49th and Carolyn Kett on her 55th. Well done all of you.

A special thanks is due to our wonderful volunteers who always do a great job but deserve extra praise for standing out in the cold, making sure we all got round ok and with plenty of smiles and words of encouragement along the way. The event was made possible by 28 volunteers:

Ian MOORE • Ian EDWARDS • Diane COLLINS • David PARKER • Shelley AMES • Jennie LEON • Georgina WALL • Anthony WALL • Will LAYTON • Liam DAVENPORT • Justine DAVENPORT • Shane DAVENPORT • Callum DAVENPORT • Ryan DAVENPORT • Theresa CORNISH • Ben KENDALL • Lisa RICHARDSON • Faye LAYTON • Joe MANTON • Meagan GIBBS • Jason WILSON • Miranda ROWLANDS • Nicola HINSLEY • Adam ZIPPELIUS • Dan James READ • Simon BARNES • Lee POTTER • Paul BLAKEMORE

Event cancelled – 3rd March

Catton parkrun on Saturday 3rd March is cancelled due to the adverse weather conditions. The park itself is covered in deep snow and icy patches. Whilst this would probably be great to run around, the roads surrounding the path are extremely icy and should not be used if at all possible. We are very concerned that travelling to the park would be unsafe for most and that asking volunteers to stand in perishing temperatures is unfair.
Apologies but common sense must prevail. Hopefully we will return as normal next week. Stay warm and get your exercise throwing snowballs and sledging instead!
Cheers,
Dan
